Leaving Varenna


Varenna is a small town on Lake Como in the northern part of Italy.  After too short of stay at a bed & breakfast above the lake, it was time to leave Varenna.  Walking up to the train station toting our bags behind us, we came upon this train trestle with a creek below. The shade looked so inviting; but only time enough for a photo and a memory, as there is no rest for the weary traveler.

Hand Crafted Wood Frame by Artist

The frames are made of non-endangered hardwood; milled, assembled, finished & matted by the Artist in a small shop in Placerville, California.

Planed boards are milled, mitered, splined with biscuits & glued. The frame is sanded, stained with red mahogany & two coats of sanding sealer are applied. Once again, the frame is sanded, followed by lacquer color coats; black on the edges; dark walnut on the face of the frame. It is finished with two coats of clear lacquer. The frame is then hand-rubbed with extra fine steel wool to achieve a satin finish.

The prints are mounted behind clear glass framed by double acid-free mats. Acid free foam core & a dust cover complete the assembly. The back has a pocket applied to house the Certificate of Authenticity which comes with each print. A wire for hanging the frame is attached.

Each frame is unique & because these frames are hand crafted from natural wood & are not a man made laminated veneer finish, there will be slight imperfections adding character to the whole piece.

If imperfections will disturb you, perhaps you would prefer to purchase a print & have your local frame shop take it from there. In either case it is my sincerest hope that you will be satisfied.



All prints are on Somerset Velvet, 100% rag paper.

Return Policy:  Money back, if piece is returned within seven days.
